%% Please do not add ''Assigned Male'' to this list; even though it has its problems, it has enough fans to prevent it from being So Bad It's Horrible

* ''[[http://badwebcomicswiki.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Chaos_Diamonds_3 Chaos Diamonds 3]]'' started as a rather mediocre ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' fanfic before making the transition to web comic. It's a shameless attempt on the part of the author to shoehorn his [[MartyStu miserable]] fan character into a Sonic storyline (said character, despite resembling a Mobian, was not really connected to the Sonicverse) as some SuperPoweredEvilSide for Tails; the writing confuses [[{{Wangst}} superfluous angst with something deep and meaningful]], and contains its fair share of FridgeHorror (if it takes place three years after ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure2'', that would make Amy 15 when she dated an 18-year-old Sonic, and Tails 11 when Amy starts dating him...''yeah''. Keep in mind that the author was eventually exposed as an abusive ephebophile). It also rather shamelessly rips off ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' in its fight scenes without that series's clarity or sense of flow.

* ''Motherfuckin' Mario'' is considered by the few unfortunate souls who have actually read it to be the worst webcomic in history, despite never even passing seven comics. This could be attributed to the fact that it is one of the most disgusting things you will ever read. It's eye-searingly ugly even by the low standards of sprite comics, almost everyone is terminally out of character, [[TheyKilledKennyAgain the one character that isn't (Luigi) is frequently killed]] [[ButtMonkey and tortured,]] and the whole experience just isn't funny... unless you consider Mario keeping Birdo as a sex slave and accidentally killing her because he overcharged her shock collar or Bowser overdosing on Viagra until his penis explodes to be funny. Seriously. There's no punchlines in sight. Just pure, condensed, unfiltered offensiveness that would be enough to disgust even Creator/TreyParkerAndMattStone.

* ''Webcomic/VeganArtbook'', a cutesy [[{{Animesque}} Sanrio-esque]] webcomic (with more than likely stolen/traced artwork, according to various sources) that summarizes itself as "veganism, ethics, the environment, food, peace, love and animals". The fifth and sixth items on that list [[{{Hypocrite}} would be more believable]] if the comic did not [[http://41.media.tumblr.com/779f02b410e738579c6becd858864703/tumblr_n8zdvdgK4i1rkwrmdo1_500.jpg advocate]] [[http://40.media.tumblr.com/cb8a82c31fb376801ad8201dd5cca3f4/tumblr_ncsj7d2Fd31rkwrmdo1_500.jpg violence]] against people who eat meat and reduce its antagonists to little more than [[http://40.media.tumblr.com/f5cad6ccaa4aa24e443baf5ded7245a6/tumblr_nabahmfPkA1rkwrmdo1_500.jpg strawmen]].

The bright, colorful art style does little to cover up the fact that the author [[AuthorTract demonizes any and all opposition to her views]] and espouses an "us against them" mentality in her comics, painting vegans as [[PuritySue pure, perfect angels]] and meat-eaters as either 1) ignorant clods who don't understand veganism or 2) selfish baby-eating monsters that need to be wiped off the face of the earth by any means necessary, including murder ([[http://41.media.tumblr.com/9451076a11224adfc75f78a10059c51f/tumblr_ncuda1qra91rkwrmdo1_500.jpg asking hunters to shoot themselves]] and depicting one of her characters hanging and brutally murdering the family of a commercial farmer). Between that lack of nuance and its equal lack of any plotline or story arc, the impression created is of ''ChickTracts'' for veganism.

* ''[[http://badwebcomicswiki.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Hathor_the_Cow_Goddess Hathor the Cow Goddess]]'' revolves around real-life naturalist feminist Heather Cushman-Dowdee in a cow mask and bottle-nipple hat preaching her views on child-rearing, healthcare, and public as well as long-term breastfeeding. This alone wouldn't necessarily make it a bad webcomic, but the comic only shows tolerance for [[AuthorTract Hathor's own views]] and [[{{Demonization}} demonizes anyone]] that advocates modern medicine, formula feeding, or sending your kids to school as an abusive parent. The author, essentially a hippie helicopter mom crossed with a Bizarro liberal [[ComicBook/ChickTracts Jack Chick]], has earned the enmity of many an amateur Egyptologist for re-purposing a cool goddess for her deranged views.

* ''Girlz 'n Games'', much like ''Gamer Chicks'', is (was?) a comic exploring the "comedy" that comes from girls liking geeky things and playing video games. The jokes are stale, poorly delivered, and unfunny (such as references to ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}''[='s=] [[MemeticMutation cake jokes]] about two years late), many jokes are misogynistic[[note]]Usually these are just [[RealWomenDontWearDresses genre snobbery directed at women]], but there have been some DomesticAbuse jokes that [[DudeNotFunny failed]] to [[CrossesTheLineTwice cross the line a second time]][[/note]], and the art's flat and underwhelming.

Too bad it's [[DudeNotFunny aggressively unfunny]], needlessly offensive, and as spiteful as humanly possible. The bald-faced contempt for all that feels joy is clear in the writing, making every single strip a soul-crushing experience in and of itself. It's often described as "''Webcomic/CyanideAndHappiness'' if it took itself ''dead seriously''".

* ''Faith Mouse'' is sort of a funny case. It's an evangelical Christian website that appears to be of the opinion that TrueArtIsIncomprehensible. Seriously, this probably sets a record when it comes to the sheer level of baffling. And yet while reading it, one gets the feeling that it would be entirely offensive if one actually could figure out what the hell it's talking about. The webcomic was made by Dan Lacey, who is now more famous for paintings of things like a nude UsefulNotes/BarackObama on a unicorn, Obama in a [[VideoGame/{{Fallout}} Vault Boy]] outfit, and Sarah Palin (and various other political figures across the spectrum) with a pancake on their heads, often naked. Also, he was [[http://blogs.citypages.com/blotter/2010/06/dan_lacey_panca.php taken to court by Birther Orly Taitz]] for a painting of her giving birth to a pancake. So it's likely the baffling absurdity of ''Faith Mouse'' was at least partially deliberate.

* ''[[http://jenffersshow.thecomicseries.com/ Jenffer´s Show]]'', a possible TrollFic by a user at the old [[ImageBoards 789chan]], combines hideous and poorly made artwork (which is bad enough to make the art from ''Webcomic/SweetBroAndHellaJeff'' look beautiful and detailed in comparison) with an unintelligible plot where it is ''very'' hard to understand what is going on in most of the pages. The dialogue constantly includes grammar mistakes (and on some pages, it becomes [[https://web.archive.org/web/20131109155147/http://jenffersshow.thecomicseries.com/comics/837/ literally unreadable]] due the small and confusing handwriting). Pretty much like ''Webcomic/{{Sonichu}}'' [[UncertainAudience it doesn't seem to know its target audience]], and despite being around the web since around 2010 (though the author appears to have been making it for ''decades''), it hasn't show any signs of improvement.

* ''Webcomic/{{Lightbringer}}'' [[http://lightbringer.comicgenesis.com/d/20060315.html is a]] story about young man who becomes the world's first superhero, written by Linkara (yes, ''that'' [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]]), now mostly considered an OldShame and with good reason. The comic follows Carter Granholme, a [[StrawmanPolitical straw]] pacifist who's had unexplained light manipulation powers since birth, but decides to never use them becaus eit goes against his philosophy. After running away from a woman being attacked seconds after he finishes philosophizing in his head about whether he should be using his powers or not, he comes to a realization that "pacifism breeds evil." The character is bland and [[UnintentionallyUnsympathetic unintentionally]] unlikable, and is prone to spouting [[AuthorFilibuster huge, preachy monologues]]. The story is pretty much a Frankenstein's monster of popular comic book stories, with the main character being [[ComicBook/{{Batman}} an orphan whose parents are murdered]], who can [[ComicBook/GreenLantern create solid constructs out of light]], and whose [[ComicBook/TheIncredibleHulk powers sometimes spark when he's angry]]. Even his costume looks like a slightly modified rip-off of [[http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/dcanimated/images/2/24/Doctor_Light.png/revision/latest?cb=20130305211421 Dr. Light's]]. The plot is poorly paced and paper-thin and often has significant events happen out of nowhere without even so much as a HandWave. The art itself is awful, owing to the fact that Linkara can't draw, with distractingly wonky perspectives and proportions, coupled with a badly-done UsefulNotes/MSPaint coloring job. While the art does get better as it goes on, it only reaches a decent level once the guest artists start coming in. Most of that could still work if not for the stilted writing and ham-fisted dialogue, with lines such as, "He is an evil man. Perhaps someday, if he understands that, he will be able to change and do things that will do true good. But for now all he ever will be is an evil man. And he has done nothing that is good."
